Jeffrey Ford

Executive Director

Jeff directs Skyterra's wellness program and leads classes in a manner that is real, comforting, and authentic. He customizes his work for every individual and designs the fitness program to be accessible and challenging for all levels. His passion for educating people is infectious! His vision is to be a leader in the health and fitness industry and to teach guests safe, effective, research-driven strategies for helping achieve their goals.

As a finisher of three Ironman triathlons and more than 10 marathons, Jeff has learned many lessons about how fitness and exercise apply to longevity and well-being – sometimes the hard way! Like many of our guests, he has been a restrictive over-exerciser and has learned from personal mistakes.

Jeff is the former Fitness Director of Hilton Head Health. He has over six years of practical experience coaching weight loss and endurance training. As a certified Wellness Coach, he’s been devoted to helping people move better and lead healthier lives since graduating from Clemson University in 2010. In addition to his full-time role at Skyterra Wellness, Jeff is the Head Coach of Triathlon for Power Speed Endurance (PSE) and is finishing up his Master's Degree in Health Education from Eastern Carolina University.

Jeff says: "I believe that everyone deserves the skills and mindset to live healthy. I'm motivated to make a difference in people's lives by helping them find new confidence in their body."
